GMC's electric, 1,000-horsepower Hummer SUV makes a surprise appearance
We knew the GMC Hummer Pickup would spawn an SUV, but we didn't expect to see it anytime soon. It appeared quietly in an electric car marketing presentation that General Motors streamed online in November 2020.
The camera never focused on the SUV, there was always a manager in front of it, but we see enough to say that it is closely related to the pickup's sibling. Both battery-powered off-roaders are almost identical from the top of the front bumper to the edge of the rear doors. The overhang of the SUV is slightly shorter than that of the pickup, although there is likely to be room for a third row of seats. The back end does not appear in the presentation.
Nothing to suggest that GMC made any major changes to the SUV's powertrain, so it's likely the same as the truck under the sheet metal. Top-range models have three motors that are set in motion by a 24-module Ultium battery. Drivers have 1,000 horsepower and around 350 miles of driving range to play with.
GMC plans to start building the Hummer pickup in late 2021, and the SUV may not go into production until early 2022. We assume prices will be over $ 100,000 initially, but cheaper options will gradually be added in the first half of the 2020s. When it lands, the off-roader competes directly against the Rivian R1S.
General Motors will invest $ 27 billion in electric and autonomous cars through 2023. The electric vehicle portfolio will also include a Silverado-sized pickup truck, a Bolt-based crossover, and a high-end Cadillac crossover called the Lyriq. "We want to be number one in electric vehicles in North America," confirmed company boss Mary Barra.
